Some strange types, on a loose sheet of typing paper. Do they even call it “typing paper,” now? Copy paper, I guess. I still like drawing on it with pens.

For someone who draws as many faces as I do, I find it hard to hit a likeness. But I’m happy with this little face of author Neil Smith I doodled in the margin of the Esplanade Editions book catalog. That glossy paper is very comfortable to draw on with the pentel brush pen. Hope […]
Petals on a wet, black bough. Seriously, yesterday I went to the Sartec mixer. That’s the Quebec union or group or whatever for French-speaking screenwriters. Got a couple of wires crossed. The meeting was taking place in the reserved salon, three stories up, and I was waiting downstairs in the bar. Met a nice couple […]
Did these over the summer, but somehow forgot to put them up. They are mainly from Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue, when I was sitting in the open air market doing portraits. They’re brush pen and watercolours, mostly.
These are sketches from the backyard garden of my cherished friend. Above is a gingko tree, though it’s hard to tell. Below, a hair in the scanner, darn it. But I’m too lazy to erase it. The spindly-looking thing is a catalpa tree, which apparently takes a while to “leaf out.” I was using Asian […]

When I feel down, unlike people who buy a pair of shoes, I sometimes get one of these babies. Doesn’t take long to fill those rather small pages. The black Koh-i-Noor stick is nice, too. Hooray for seasonal sales at the art or stationery store! Terrible stuff to watch, last night, on the “Tube” (Youtube, […]
I’ve been occupied with things— haven’t really been blogging much. Also haven’t gotten out for a while to the monthly Montreal Comic Jam. That happens near the end of the month at a strange little bar in east downtown called l’Escalier. (“The Stairway”) Very studenty, hippie sort of bar…. Anyhow, the event has morphed into […]
More faces, like it said up top, but this time I’m inking them with the brush pen, so they’re not as scratchy. Not sure which I prefer. Above are Liv Tyler from The Lord of the Rings, two faces from the DVD cover for “Sky Captain,” and the sinister Conrad Black, recently released from prison […]
